Section Properties

You can evaluate section properties for multiple faces and sketches that lie in parallel planes.

You can evaluate different entities without closing the Section Properties dialog box. Clear the selections, then select the entity, and click Recalculate.

When you evaluate more than one entity, the first selected face defines the plane for section property calculation.

Displaying Section Properties for Multiple Entities

To display section properties for multiple entities:

  1. Select any of the following that lie in parallel planes:
    • one or more planar model faces
    • a face on a section plane
    • the crosshatch section face in a section view of a drawing
    • a sketch (click the sketch in the FeatureManager design tree or right-click the feature and select Edit Sketch)
  2. Click Section Properties (Tools toolbar) or Tools > Evaluate > Section Properties.
    The results are displayed in the Section Properties dialog box.
